30 Day Manga Challenge Day 24

Day 24: The best long manga series

Ok, so this one is Fairy Tail, however, has been brought up in about 5 of these days so far, so I really do not want it to show up anymore, as much as I enjoy it. So here is another day change. Now what that is, I cannot really say, well, yeah I can.

Day 24: The longest running manga you own

30 Day Manga Challenge Day 10

Day 10: A manga you would like to see more anime of

oh my goddess

This one is a tricky one. But of course the second after saying that an answer pops into my head, Ah My Goddess. I am going on the fact that the show has ended and the manga itself has ended. I could have gone on the fact that the anime did not sell well enough for it to ask for another season, but I prefer one that was not so lucky.

omnibus oh my goddess
Just a picture of my copy of the omnibus. So yay to that.

Ah My Goddess was one of the first series I watched, in fact I think it was the second. I did stop watching for a time before picking it up again. To this day it is still one of my favorites and I wish to rewatch it when I have the time. I also now own the first Ominbus of the manga, which is amazing. The series ran for 26 years, had an OVA in the 90s, an original movie, which was nice, in the early 2000s. Then 2005-2008 it had two series air with a total of 52 episodes, as well as 3 OVAs after 2011. The manga ended in June of 2014. There was a rumor of a special announcement for it last year, but nothing was ever said. I would love to have another season, even if they skipped around and gave the series an ending. I just think it is amazing it lasted for 26 years as a monthly series. Lasting 26 years in general is amazing too.

As a major like for this series is the fact is not some sort of exaggerated love story, it is a very nice one. (I really need to rewatch it.) Anyway, although I have not read all the manga, I do remember reading the final last year. This is more speaking from the fact it is one of my favorite anime than a manga.

The manga has been being released and still is by Dark Horse Comics. The anime in all honesty I do not know if Funimation still has the rights to, they have not done anything with it in a while, if anyone knows please tell me.

What manga, no matter the reason, do you wish had another season or re-adaptation?

Day 9: A manga you wish to be made into an anime

Day 11:  A manga that makes you fluffy and happy when you read it 

As always I hope you enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts on these posts too. It can be on Twitter as well.

30 Day Manga Challenge Day 4

Day 4: A character you feel you are most like or wish you were

oh my goddess

This question I always have difficult answering. I had trouble with the 30 Day Anime challenge of this one. However the good news is this one adds the “wish you were” part. So it might be easier. In all honesty I still do not know, even though the image that more than likely appeared above gives it away, but me writing this does not know who that is.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 30

Day 30: An anime you wish never ended and continued on


Well, day thirty is finally here! Before I answer this I have to say this was a lot of fun. I am glad I did this. Although I forget where I found the original idea, and more than likely I found it typing up 12 day anime challenge and finding this one instead, since the other one deals with Christmas, but anyway I had a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoyed.


So without further ado, my response for this one is very is it is A Certain Magical Index Oh My Goddess. The series completed its 26 year continuous run last year for the manga. The anime ended back in 2006. So, needless to say there is a lot that they could do for the anime. I really like this series, and I would love to see more. I watched the OVAs that came out back in 2011 and I really liked them, only down side is that they are not licensed. I also want to belldandyread the manga, the only problem is that the one, Barnes and Nobles does not carry it, and the comic store that does have used copies of it only has volume 20 and up to the newest volume. However it was announced, although it has not been stated when, that the manga will be rereleased in Omnibus editions, so hopefully the comic store will have those since they carry the latest volumes. In a way it got my hopes up for a third season, like how Index movie, the major announcement that turned into the anime adaptation for Heavy Object and so much more that did not give it a third season. So yeah, the anime I want to continue on and did not end is A Certain Magical Index Oh My Goddess.


So, again, I hope you enjoyed the last 30 days, I know I did.

Day 29

Back to Day 1


What is an anime you did not want to end but did? Also would it be possible for another season for that show?

Also did you take part in this challenge or are thinking about doing it? Please tell me I want to check it out.

Top Five Romance Anime

top 5

Well, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. If you are like me and never be in a relationship on that day well, I’m just going to stop there. Anyway there are those people that happen to be lucky and are actually in relationships, although it is really terrible and try to deal with those people on that day. Never mind that since I am counting down what shows I might end up watching tomorrow in order to forget that I am alone. With that messed up logic out of the way here are my Top Five Romance Anime series. I know there are some I want to put on the list, but I have not seen them, namely Clannad.


Number 5: Chobits

I am having trouble remembering when I watched Chobits. I think like sixty percent of what is on this list wasin my first year of watching anime, so it has been chobitsawhile. Chobits is different when it comes to romance series. Love has no boundaries between man and woman, woman and woman, man and man, as long as the age of consent is fine then love has no bounds. However unlike all the other series on this list, this one is odd. It is a love story between man and a robot named Chi. It really brings into question what defines love and how far would you go for it, also what is limited to being love or giving love. If you are a person that is heavily into romance anime, although I do not normally recommend series at random, this would be one series that I would strongly recommend.



Number 4: The World is Still Beautiful

            Well this series is back in the Top Five, did not see that happening any time soon. Anyway this one is again a the-world-is-still-beautifullittle different. Typical romance films and really anything does not really show a political marriage. If you have seen this series then you know that the reason the princess gets married is through a political marriage and throughout the course of the series the two main characters fall in love. Although the two were in a way forced together to begin with it seems somewhat fitting for what happens and how they genially fall for each other over time.  This is also the shortest series on this list, where the others have over 24 or more episodes.


Number 3: Toradora!

This is a series by Tuyuko Takemiya. The only reason why I bring up the person’s name is due to the fact thattoradora what is at number 2 is another one of their work. Anyway Toradora! was easily in the top fifteen anime series that I ever watched. Now I will admit that there are a few problems that I have with this series and the relationship. This is mostly because the relationship, although was building, did not actually happen until the very end. This series is more about the confession, which some romance series tend to have. It is just up to the confession and not much more happens after that, this shares the similarity with all of the ones on this list before it. Although I have not seen the dub, it is not really on my list to watch any time soon. However I still acknowledge the fact that I really did enjoy this series when I watched it all that time ago and is better than the ones that number 4 and 5.


Number 2: Golden Time

Now it is getting different. Although the series’ source material was by the same creator as Toradora! a clear Golden-Timedifference can be seen rather easily in this series. There may be a love triangle present throughout the series but it actually goes beyond the point of the confession and the two characters actually date and have real problems in order to maintain their relationship. At times this seems like actually problems a couple could have at times when wondering if there person they are with is the right person as well as going to what lengths in order to make sure that they are by each other’s side. This was one series that I really looked forward to each week as it was airing since I knew I could go in and enjoy and still question what could happen next if another problem where to arise.


Number 1: Ah My Goddess

Okay, so this series could be considered a Harem, but I do not count it as one for the main reason that there is a clear relationship between Belldandy and Keiichi and most of the other characters are either trying to ruin or help their relationship progress. For starters I have to say it is amazing that the manga lasted for 26 years. This was alsooh my goddess the second anime series that I have ever watched as well. Although I stopped mid-way through season one I quickly picked it up again nearly six months later and watched both season. I am not sure if I have stated but this series is in my top ten favorite anime series of all time. There is something about the charm, the purity. It is not trying to act flashy, be a drama, or even have fan service at times. It is basically just saying at what lengths you would go in order to make sure that special someone is happy and will always be by your side even if you are uncertain if they can always be by your side or if you are even capable of doing all the things you promised to them. What it does, it does right. I really wished it got more episodes when the manga was ending, but it did not, which was unfortunate.


So, that is the Top Five Romance series. Since this is about just a single relationship, the next Top Five will discuss what happens when the character just cannot make up their mind in Top Five Harem/Reverse Harem Anime.


What are your Top Five Romance series?
